I think the band put on amazing shows all the way through '83, until they started doing that way pretentious Stonehenge stuff.

Wait, I'm confusing the Dead with Spinal Tap, but I'd say the Dead had more frequent amazing shows during the early 80's until the '84 Void (barring the summer '85 resurgence, which is like the best stuff from the mid 80's, hands down). Come on, if y'all ain't down with '83, then you ain't down. That includes '89-'90 era too. Some epic shows in those years.

I've been doing some thinking about my post, and I suppose I should listen to more '84 shows before calling it a "Void". I should also consult more '87-'88 shows before casting doubt on those years. I bet those years have some amazing nuggets as well that would put me and Hucker to shame. I know I've encountered some of the glory from those years already, but not much has left a very lasting impression on me.

Yes, yes, and yes. This whole run is awesome. Hampton from a couple weeks later is also a good one from '84... some nice summer shows and the fall on the east coast, finishing up on the west coast is also well played and has some very nice moments.

I love the 1984-07-13 dark star. Thought it was well played for being gone as long as it was.

You read that post over and only found fault in questioning your 84' listening habits,yousaw nothing wrong with telling intelligent people who took the time to clearly express their opinions on the subject that since they did not share your view on 83' or 89'-90' they were not "down".Not that I could give a fuck about your feelings about my "down-ness",but before I get offensive I might recommend some introspection Hunter,for you seem to be out of whack in relation to how important your opinion is to other people,for example I find it of no value whatsoever,and would be perfectly fine never hearing another.

In any case, y'all better ask somebody if you don't really understand the glory that is 80's Dead.
